With the beginning of 2021 I decided to start a project of revisiting my perfume collection and writing a post about my findings. It might take me a while but I think it is necessary I do so.
First of all, Bonjour Perfume blog was created for this particular reason – it was meant to be like my diary about fragrances. And second of all, as much as I love niche perfumes, I realized how closed off and limited I became – circulating probably only among ten bottles, forgetting and pushing aside all other fragrances in the collection just because they were designer scents, easily available in stores, not niche…
At the start of 2020 none of us could have predicted the extremely different year ahead. A year of a lot of uncertainty, pain, and sorrow. But also hope, kindness, and desire for change. Only through the hardship we tend to evolve, though. So, as this year is nearing the end, I am certain, each one of us have been through their own hell and back, and now more than ever we have learnt the most about ourselves, as single individuals and as a society.
Wild Rose, the newest creation of the Irish perfume house The Burren Perfumery, could not have come at a better time.
Elevenses – my favorite time of day… When the morning rush is over it’s time for a little treat. It always comes paired with a delicious mug of tea, something sweet, and a scent which lifts me up. That’s a moment of peace, time to gather my thoughts and move on with the day. Like a ritual – extremely important.
I must be honest, I am loving this new theme on the blog – Perfume Portraits! It is so nice to get back to taking pictures again! 🙂 It felt like I lost the skill (and desire) somewhere at some stage… But it is so lovely to see that exciting feeling coming back, at last! 🙂
